Nintendo and Squenix have re-released Final Fantasy VI (again), this time in Game Boy Advance form. This does not come without a cost, however.

Kefka no longer calls Edgar a "Son of a submariner." The classic line has now been translated as the equally-nonsensical and much less aesthetically pleasing "Son of a sandworm."

Rest in peace, submariner. You will be missed.

I hate hate hate hate...etc. that change. Fortunately, that line is survived by many of its siblings, including "There's SAND on my BOOTS" and "You sound like pages out of a self-help booklet!", classics all. Really, I'm not sure why they changed the submariner line if they were going to leave in the rest of the stoner genius that went into Kefka's lines.

There go my plans for a Namor the Submariner joke. :(
I set my ATM card's number to "0001" because I'm number one!

Isn't making a joke about Namor the Submariner a little redundant?

Point conceded.

They changed the "hate hate hate... etc." line, too. Now it's some manner of long, elaborate invective I can't be bothered to remember.
